Least Squares Means and standard errors (LSM ± SE) of the log10 transformed bacterial cell counts (BCC) (log10 CFU/mL) and bacterial colony sizes (BCS) (µm) retrieved from the highly and low virulent isolates inoculated modified Shieh broths 24 h after addition of the appropriate cortisol concentrations [cortisol] (µg/L).
